The UMRBA is a non-profit organization formed in 1981 by the Governors of the five Upper Mississippi River states (IL, IA, MN, MO, and WI) to provide a forum for discussion and collective action on regional water resource issues.
Each state is represented on UMRBA by a gubernatorial designee, typically from the state agency with primary responsibility for water management. Federal advisory members include the USACE, EPA, USFWS, USGS, NRCS, USCG, and FEMA.  The UMRBA’s activities span a broad range of issues, including habitat restoration, commercial navigation, floodplain management, water quality, and spill response.
